This episode was the first one I didn't like, although the ending was compelling.

Quite a haunting episode, really. Brooker's mind is dark as f***!

Watched it earlier, extremely dark. I love the  fact you gave no idea what your gonna get from each episode.

I thought it set up an interesting moral quandary.

I've just binged all of the new series since getting in from work. Knackered but worth it. Hauntingly good, although there are some 'good' endings this time around which is odd. Maybe to try and cater to a wider audience, I don't know.

I've atched episode 1 and 3 so far - both absolutely brilliant. I'll watch the rest this weekend.

Watched 1st one of the new series so far, one of worst BMs I've seen. Hope the next couple improve and I'm sure they will!

Only watched first episode, was steady but nowt special. Some good ideas but ending was a bit flat. Looking forward to rest though.

Yeah I enjoyed it, thought Bryce Dallas Howard was quality. Didn't entirely get the interaction at the end.

I wasn't expecting it to be set in America.

Done 1&2 now, really enjoyed 2. Not a let down. I was worried it might be! Quality stuff

Just watched the first one of season 3. Not seen any of the others but thought it was very good.

Decided to start watching season 1 where the guys demand that the prime minister have sex on national televsion with a pig. My first thought was 'ha that's hillarious' until it occurred to me that this must have been broadcast way before piggate. How prophetic  :lol:


... unless this Ashcroft got the idea from?  ???

They were both in the same position, both freed from having to try to please everyone else to get ratings so could literally enjoy saying what they felt like even just for the sake of saying it.
Bullshitters misrepresent themselves to their audience not as liars do, that is, by deliberately making false claims about what is true. In fact, bullshit need not be untrue at all.

Rather, bullshitters seek to convey a certain impression of themselves without being concerned about whether anything at all is true. They quietly change the rules governing their end of the conversation so that claims about truth and falsity are irrelevant.

Ep 2 of new series was a bit of a let down as well for me, better than the first though. Episode 3 however is top notch. I won't say anything imprtant about it but just all round cringey brilliance. A bit black comedy as well which is usually Black Mirror at it's best.

Episode 4 is off its tits. It's as near as you'll get to a modern day Twilight Zone. It's gone from being outstanding to all time classic with the budget upgrade like, it desperately needed this to get there imo.
Dead in the middle of Little Italy little did we know that we riddled some middle men who didn't do diddely.

Just turned the TV off after episode 3 to hopefully get some sleep and you're tempting me to turn it back on. :lol:

E1 was a good, if slow, start. Better than E2 at least, which was a bit meh imo. E3 was good and I'm hoping from the above post this is where it picks up even more for the last three episodes.

Need to go back and re-watch from the first series after.

I think with the format the way that it is, you just have to take it on an episode to episode basis like, and it's all about whether the idea resonates with you personally.

6 > 3 > 2 > 1 > 5 > 4 imo, but as said it completely depends on what clicks with you. All at the very least good though.

Just finished this.

1. Good ep. Kinda dragged for a bit
2. This was probably my favorite one. It was actually pretty scary.
3. Good ep. Similar to the White Bear one. That kid was a great actor. Was the guy from Game of Thrones in this?
4. Probably my least favorite. Great production and acting, just wasn't really a fan of the romantic storyline. Does anyone know the story behind the guy that kept hitting on the main character and getting shot down? Felt bad for hin.
5. One of the best ones in the series. It was quite chilling.
6. Wish it wasn't as long as it was but I liked the twist. At times it felt like an episode of Law and Order. Annoying chick from Boardwalk Empire was the main character I believe.

15 Million Merrits will always be my favorite. Episode five had an ode to it when the army girl sang the song.

started s1e1 last night, no idea whatsoever what it was about

1min in, f***ing hell :lol:
So raise your fists and march around
Dont dare take what you need
I'll jail and bury those committed
And smother the rest in greed
Crawl with me into tomorrow
Or i'll drag you to your grave
I'm deep inside your children
They'll betray you in my name

Sleep now in the fire

Best to start with ep 2. First one was total s*** imo.

Was really hoping Dennis Reynolds would make an appearance in episode one
